Riggers Retreat - Why you should visit.

Founded by Lyn and Ian Rigby after the loss of their son, Fusilier Lee Rigby. Lyn’s own experience and that of her family is compelling evidence of need for this project, and it is to help other families in the same situation. Having found that there are a great many more families in similar need of such support, we decided that retreats like ours help the families in so many more ways than just a simple holiday.


Riggers Retreat is founded to help families get away from day-to-day stresses and hopefully enable families to gather and spend quality time together in a neutral surrounding.
